This weeks theme for Sunday Supper is "Sauce it Up". 

Sometimes when I see the upcoming Sunday Supper themes I need a little time to think about what I want to make. This time I knew immediately. 

I had been wanting to do something with pumpkin and apples. I wanted to make something that was versatile, something that could be used in a sweet or savory recipe. I settled on making pumpkin applesauce because I knew it could go with anything from chicken and pork, to oatmeal and ice cream. 

Kevin had no idea I was making this, so when he came home from work he was happily surprised. He loves pumpkin. 

I think I mentioned a week or so back that after 5 years I just found that out. 

Way to be on the ball Bobbi!! 


Anyway, as soon as he walked in the door he was greeted with a big spoonful of the sauce.

Me - Here, eat this.
Kevin - What is it?
Me - Just try it, you will like it!
Kevin - Famous last words!!
Me - Oh come on, you know I wouldn't feed you anything bad!
Kevin - (after taking a bite.....and then the whole jar) This is for me right?
Me - Sure....good thing I made more than one!

The recipe actually yielded a little under 3 pints, so Kevin got one, I got one, and the kids will get one too. 

Everybody wins!!

  21. That looks really good. I just cooked a pumpkin and I made some applesauce yeterday. I wonder what they would taste like if I just mixed them together a little. I might try it.
